Parathyroid hormone (PTH) of 1.6 pmol/l or more at 6 months is associated with delayed recovery of parathyroid function in post-surgical hypoparathyroidism (PoSH)

Fahad Arshad Muhammad , Dhami Amardass , Quarrell Gillian , Balasubramanian Saba P

Introduction: Post-surgical hypoparathyroidism (PoSH) is common after thyroidectomy. Most cases recover within 6 months, but several require long-term supplementation with calcium and activated vitamin D. When PoSH persists beyond 6 months, it is considered to be ‘long-term’ or ‘permanent’. However, few studies have demonstrated recovery beyond this time period.Aim: Aim of this study is to determine the frequency of late recovery in t...

Society for Endocrinology / Parathyroid UK National Hypoparathyroidism Management Audit

Shen Kiam Jian , Sharma Vivek , Glenister Liz , Fraser William , Turner Jeremy

Individuals with chronic hypoparathyroidism sometimes receive suboptimal care with high frequency of unplanned hospitalisation and iatrogenic harm. In 2015 the European Society for Endocrinology published evidence base consensus guidelines on the management of chronic hypoparathyroidism. Using these consensus recommendations as audit standards we worked with the Society for Endocrinology and Parathyroid UK to conduct a national audit of management of chronic hypoparathyroidism...

Background: Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) has been implicated in the pathophysiology of respiratory infections, including Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We assessed vitamin D levels of patients who died from COVID-19 during or following admission to Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals.Methods: We performed a retrospective survey of electronic patient records for 2,355 patients admitted to our institution between 04/02/2020 and 19/01/2021, who had a positive...

Normocalcaemic hyperparathyroidism: Impact of assay and reference range differences on the diagnosis

Fenn Jonathan , Kalaria Tejas , Sanders Anna , Ford Clare , Gama Rousseau

Approximately 70% of clinical laboratories in the United Kingdom use assays from Abbott Laboratories and Roche Diagnostics. We carried out a cross-sectional study between two neighbouring hospital laboratories in our regional pathology network, comparing the potential impact of Abbott and Roche PTH and calcium assays in the diagnosis of normocalcaemic hyperparathyroidism. Over 4 months, forty-one vitamin D replete (>50 nmol/l) normocalcaemic hyperparathyroidism patients (3...
